USRobotics Launches Compact, Affordable PCI Express Fax Modem
USR 56K PCIe Offers Broad Compatibility with Windows Systems, Simplifies Mass Installations, Approved for Use in the U.S. and Europe
Chicago (August 26, 2010) – USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company and leading provider of Internet access and networking products, today introduced the new USRobotics 56K PCI Express Modem (USR5638), a single lane express fax modem with both full height and low profile brackets. Featuring 1-2-3 installation and an estimated retail price point under $30, the new modem is designed to fit into any available PCI Express 1.1 slot and is approved for applications with computers in multiple regions/countries around the globe.
According to Bruce Swail, CEO at USRobotics, the USR PCIe fax modem is ideal for businesses in multiple locations with point-of-sale and machine-to-machine systems that need a compact dial-up fax modem incorporated into the network. “Simply put, the PCIe fax modem allows companies to have more functionality and more reliability with their computer systems.” He continued, “Many of our customers have upgraded from PCI to PCIe because new systems no longer have PCI, so it’s critical for us to be able to offer them a fax modem that can be easily incorporated into large-scale solutions throughout North America and Europe.”
The USR PCIe fax modem can send and receive faxes through the computer while simultaneously running other applications. It allows preferred modem default settings to be permanently stored and includes wake-on-ring which allows the connected computer to be in a sleep or idle state until a call is received through the modem. With Quick Connect (V.92), the USR PCIe reduces the time it takes to establish a standard dial-up Internet connection making POS connection times faster.
With just one installation file for multiple operating systems, the USR PCIe modem is designed for mass installations making it especially ideal for businesses with a high volume of varied computer systems. It is broadly compatible with Windows systems including POSready, 64 bit, and server systems. It has received regulatory approval in both North America and Europe and has qualified for additional worldwide regulatory approvals.
Because USRobotics is committed to keeping its technology products safe for the environment, the new PCIe modem has also fully achieved RoHS compliance.
The new USRobotics 56k PCI Express modem is currently available and can be purchased through USRobotics’s authorized distributors and reseller partners. It can also be ordered directly at www.usr.com/pcie. The new product comes standard with a two-year limited manufacturer warranty from the date of purchase.
